ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Steve Bernier's fluke goal helped the San Jose Sharks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight victory.

Bernier missed a pass by Christian Ehrhoff only to have the puck bounce off his right skate and into the Minnesota net in the second period.

Minnesota, which lost at home for only the third time this season, had a season-low 16 shots on goal and lost for the third time in its last four outings.

The Sharks, who won their two previous games in shutouts, lost their bid for a third straight shutout on an early goal. Minnesota winger Mattias Weinhandl gave the home team the lead at 2:54 of the first, beating Evgeni Nabokov with a low shot.

Rookie forward Joe Pavelski tied it for the Sharks on a first-period power play, tipping Matt Carle's shot past Manny Fernandez. Pavelski, a star on Wisconsin's NCAA championship team last season - has scored in consecutive games and has three goals in four NHL games.
